The fiber registration page is a very new platform for us to better manage the large number of fiber registrants around the county–so new that comments have been pretty minimal thus far. We certainly do appreciate folks asking question though, so please do!
Internet connections, historically, have been an expensive and often cost-prohibitive venture for companies to consider. Likewise, fiber internet that extends (or even is within range) of a fiber pathway is often cost prohibitive for companies and the homeowners themselves. We are very fortunate here in eastern Jefferson County to have applied and receive more than $25M in grant funding to aid in fiber buildout. As the local utility provider, we were recently granted the ability to act as a retail provider ISP. Being able to operate as an ISP and own and maintain the utility system, we are in a position to provide customers in otherwise cost-prohibitive or hard-to-reach locations with fiber internet.
